Down the Stretch with Sherlene Shanklin: I announced earlier today that Jennifer Hudson will be performing at the Grand Gala on Oaks night in Louisville, KY. Now, I can announce one more guest and he used to dominate the boards in the NBA. He's a four-time NBA Champion, 15-time NBA All-Star and his number was retired by the Los Angeles Lakers. Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal will be one of the celebrity guest for this year's Derby event. I also reported last week that O'Neal's comedy tour will be in Louisville at the Palace on May 31st. The Grand Gala will be held on Friday, May 3rd at the Marriott East in Louisville, KY during the Kentucky Derby weekend.
